    The two hoppers will not function as "one big DVR". In other words, if you have something scheduled to record on one hopper, and that hopper has conflicts, the recording will not be pushed over to the other hopper for it to record automatically. You will have to manually balance what you want recorded on each hopper.

    An OTA option with multiple tuners would be a nice addition. Three sat tuners shared by four TVs will prove to be insufficient, especially during non-Prime Time periods when much may be going on. It's no big deal now during the Summer doldrums but can be an issue when TV actually heats up in the Fall.

    Yes it would but all we have seen so far is a single OTA USB Module which makes no sense when your previous OTA Module the MT2 for the 922&722k&222 has 2 OTA tuners.

    Of course I have always thought that when the Hopper came out it was 1 satellite tuner short(should have had 4 satellite tuners),and 2 OTA tuners short for my preferences and satellite viewing and recording needs.;)

    I just had my system installed yesterday and found out once they updated that they all talk it is really nice as now you only need on set for PTAT and any tv can watch it. The really optimum setuo is one hopper or one joey for any TV that is used a lot but for an exercise room guest room the 2nd joey is fine i have 5 TVs with 2 hoppers it is really nice the only thing I miss is coax out I have several older TVs and the picture looks like crap on those now. But my bedroom plasma never looked so good!

    Well for some reason my Joey's have a really bad lag when Fast Forwarding about 1/4 Thur at 60x if i stop and play I am 3/4 done at 300X it is impossible. Dish tech here now seems pretty clueless he is replacing the LNB that was just replaced when I got the Hopper/Joeys and the switch which is also new without checking to see how well they are communicating?

    Not 2nd guessing it is just that troubleshooting is my primary job and for me indetify possible problems before you start trying solutions.

    Will let you know how it works out the tech does not even have a switch on his truck so another tech is bringing one over?

    Well after recording new shows the same problem exists, it also happens with the 2 Hoppers watching shows on the other one the MOCA shows full bars but not broadband except on the one Hopper I have hard wired.

    It is pretty bad at this point I am not sure what the solution would be unless the Dish tech has a way to measure the actual speed from one unit to another to find and issue but since it happens between every unit in the house and they installed a new switch outside i thing it is just a software /speed issue, would having all the units on broadband help?

    well the tech replaced 3 coax connectors 1 to a Hopper and 2 to Joeys, the LNB and the Switch, here is the weird part he said that shows I already recorded will not Fast Forward properly I need to record some new shows to see how it works?

    Will wait until tonight to see
